Two exposures and big windows means lots of natural light.

If you (or your houseplants) have a thing for light and don't mind living pretty far east in Manhattan, this bright one bedroom in Murray Hill could be worth a look. Listed for $550,000, 320 East 42nd St., #1218, is located in the enclave of Tudor City, which overlooks the East River and is next to the United Nations. 

The apartment has a nearly a solid wall of casement windows running the length of the space, with the kitchen, living room and dining room facing east and away from the street. (The view includes the U.N., Tudor City and the Tudor City Greens.)  Built in 1929, the co-op has hardwood floors, French doors, and crown moldings. 

The renovated space is filled with built-ins, and there are two closets.

The kitchen has a window and stainless steel appliances. (We don't see the bathroom; perhaps it needs a refresh.)
